MUNICH: June 05, 2019. The airports of Amsterdam (AMS) and Atlanta (ATL) have signed an MoU to promote air cargo trade and investment between the Atlanta region and the Netherlands.

The MoU will enable an exchange of data between AMS and ATL to facilitate end-to-end planning and capacity optimisation, extend the benefits of the AMS Cargo Community system to ATL, and boost trade flows between the respective air cargo gateways.

From September this year the two airports will be developing the Atlanta Cargo Network in a bid to increase exports of agricultural and manufacturing goods produced in Georgia.

AMS ATL MoU signing Munich 2019“This collaborative agreement will enable us to promote the benefits of strengthening the Netherlands as a gateway to Europe, and Atlanta Airport as a gateway to the Atlantic, the Midwest, and the South of the USA,” declared Bart Pouwels, head of Cargo for Schiphol airport.

The agreement will also connect the key cargo operators and logistics providers at AMS and ATL supported by Cargonaut, which operates the Schiphol Cargo Community Information Platform at Schiphol.

ATL airport is currently working with Kale Logistics Solutions and the local air freight community to create the next generation airport cargo community system.

“The next gen platform goes beyond the traditional message exchange systems and aims to integrate the whole air freight supply chain from exporter to importer, thereby creating efficiency, transparency, and security in the supply chain,” said Amar More, director of Kale Logistics Solutions.

“This community system also has the capability to link to the partner airport communities through digital corridors and illuminate the end-to-end shipment journey,” he added.

The collaborative agreement with Atlanta coincides with the ongoing rollout of Schiphol’s Smart Cargo Mainport Program (SCMP) that focuses on sharing data and other collaborative initiatives to optimise air cargo flows.
